Glue and Go Costume Sessions For Kids and Parents at Libraries

Children love to play dress-up, and they like it even more when they can make the costume themselves. 

Your Metropolitan Library System introduces you and your children to the art of “Glue and Go Costuming for Kids” at eight area libraries from June 15 through June 17.

“Each hour-long session conveys enough information to get you started on creating the perfect costume for your child,” says MLS Children’s Services Coordinator Lisa Wood.  “It’s a great way for kids to be creative and build self-esteem by seeing something they design come to life.”

“Be Creative” is the theme of this year’s Summer @ the Library Program for Kids. 

“We’ve invited Holly Cleeland, author of the book ‘Glue and Go Costumes for Kids,’ to conduct these sessions.  She’ll show kids and parents how to make prize-winning costumes out of household items.”

Cleeland is a professional backdrop and billboard painter for Warner Bros. Studios.  She will give away three costumes at the end of each workshop.
